The Harvard Square Business Association welcomes a new musical art installation called “Play Me, I’m Yours” into Harvard Square. The music art project, which international public artist Luke Jerram conceived, places painted pianos all over the world. Most recently they added pianos in Boston and Cambridge locations, for everyone to play and enjoy. Each piano comes with a simple instructions: Play Me, I’m Yours.
Trademark Tours founder Daniel Andrew sat down to the piano on Brattle street, just down the road from our tour launch, where he jammed out a few tunes. Take a listen to Jazzy Moves, The Entertainer, and Billy Joel’s famous Piano Man in the video below!
“Play Me I’m Yours” has installed more than 1,500 pianos in over 50 cities around the world, from Times Square to London and beyond, all with the hope of bringing music to the masses! The pianos are around Boston until October 10 and you can find the locations here. So get out there and…

Well, we’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us feelin’ alright”
